About this grant

Oil Change International has worked over the last decade to increase the transparency of international financial institution lending in the energy sector, ensuring that there is clearer data to inform policymakers. The overarching goal of this project is to shift international development finance away from fossil fuels to support for clean energy and energy access for the poor in rural areas. Over the last grant period, the grantee has significantly expanded its tracking of public finance for fossil fuels, expanding the data to include all of the major multilateral development banks. With this renewal grant, the grantee will continue its work in support of renewable energy and energy access. The grantee will increase its monitoring of international public financing for energy projects to African countries, with a particular focus on the financing for energy access projects and off-grid renewable projects.
